Deplorable Kid Rock, the controversial artist launched a profanity-filled tirade against day-time talk show hosts at a bar in Nashville. An apparently intoxicated Rock was later removed from the stage by security.
In video obtained by TMZ, Rock, 48, tells the crowd, “F— Oprah. Oprah Winfrey is like ‘Hey, I just want women to believe in this s—’. F— her. She can s— d— sideways.”
Rock, whose legal name is Robert Ritchie, is a longstanding Oprah hater. In a 2008 interview with The Independent, Rock put Winfrey in the category of his “real-life villain” and said, “I just don’t believe her. Maybe it’s because I’m not one of the 150 million brainwashed women who heed her every word.”
An avowed Trump supporter who’s dealt with many accusations of racism in the past, Rock attempted to downplay any racist overtones to his anti-Oprah stance. First he attacked other talk show hosts Joy Behar and Kathie Lee Gifford. Rock has previously clashed with Behar, who he called a “b—-” on a 2018 episode of “The View,” which Behar co-hosts.
Then, he concluded his bizarre rant with “If you say that, you’re like, ‘Hey, well, pretty sure Kid Rock’s a racist.’ I’m like, OK, fine. F— off. Sideways.”
